Can Feminism and Female Supremacism be Packed into Separate Boxes?

Counter-feminist analysis concludes that feminism and female supremacism are interchangeable terms, and we assert that no other analysis will generate effective political traction.

You may agree, or not, that feminism equals female supremacism -- yet female supremacism as a datum is not to be doubted. It is out there. It is real. It is a part of the world. And if you are serious in opposing it you cannot avoid asking how it relates to feminism.

How would the absence of one affect the other, and what is their exact chemistry of co-existence? Are the two at odds with each other? Are they symbiotic with each other? Are they part-and-parcel of each other? Or do they run on separate rails oblivious to each other? If you oppose feminism, and yet believe that female supremacism is a separate object all by itself, then how precisely does female supremacism factor into your political calculations? Do you even think about this at all? How can you not entertain such questions?

    without female supremacy, feminism is a trivial oddity

    without feminism, female supremacy is naked
